    Is there anyway to lighten the pressure needed to depress the grip safety on a new 1911. Mine seems to be on the stiff side and it is affecting my accuracy, causing me to shoot low.

    The way I naturally hold a 1911, two handed, there seems to be a void where the grip safety bump is, and it seems to take much more effort to depress it when shooting. When I pull the trigger it actually pulls the safety into my hand slightly to fully engage it, and the shot breaks low.

    The other 1911's I have shot had much easier depressing grip safeties and I shot them fine. I dont want to change my grip since I am very accurate with my Glock and Beretta, so if there is a way to lighten one up please let me know.

    adjust the right leaf of the sear spring.
    just make sure that there's enough tension to move the GS to block the trigger.
